An accomplished psychiatrist, Dr. Christie Mensch enjoys traveling throughout Europe. Also an amateur cook, Dr. Christie Mensch is especially fond of Italy because of the flavors of regions like Tuscany and Campania.

One of the best destinations for an Italian vacation, Campania has many things to do and see. Perhaps the biggest attraction in the region is Mount Vesuvius and the destroyed ancient cities Pompeii and Herculaneum, but another activity is a cruise of the Amalfi Coast, home to some of the best citrus in the world.

Another top destination in Campania is the Sorrento Peninsula, which has a number of quaint towns, as well as Capri, a historic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Roman emperors would often vacation on Capri, which is recognized as one of the most beautiful parts of country.

History buffs should spend time in Paestum, which has some of the best-preserved Greek and Etruscan monuments in mainland Italy. Paestum is a region in the Bay of Naples. The capital of Campania, Naples is a modern city that still has many remnants of its beginnings in the Middle Ages.
